Zaporizhzhia again. More merciless attacks on peaceful people, on residential buildings, in the middle of the night. Inhumane and terrorists.Volodymyr Zelensky
Zaporizhzhia was also the target of missile attacks on Thursday and Friday. Another 17 people died in the 6 October raid. Several wounded. Instead, the bombing on Friday night caused damage to the power system of the Dniprovska nuclear power plant. As a result, the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant ran out of electricity. The Ukrainian Ministry of Energy has announced that over 700,000 Ukrainians are without electricity due to the war triggered by Russia. Most of them in the Donetsk, Kharkiv, Luhansk and Mykolaiv regions. On the other hand, 621,500 Ukrainians are left without gas.
